Jets are out I believe, the ones I used the screwdriver on right?

Those two long needles you show in your last picture are also in two brass metering jets. They don't have a screwdriver slot on them, they take a small socket to remove because they are hex headed.

They ran in the two jets I unscrewed and took a picture of.

The two metering needles in this picture are in brass metering jets, so remove them, too.

I did.

 
 
Those are the jets that screwed into the bowl that the needles went in and out of.

Oh, OK, my bad, I thought here were metered jets for acceleration and idle, and main jets, too. OK, I had the pictures mixed up with content pulled out. Good job, dumb me.

Nope, 2 jets do it all.  Pretty simple carb, I think, but I'm worried about making it run again after I put it back together.  I hated having to remove the two mixture screws.carrman2012-01-15 17:21:07

The venturi cap has a couple of tiny orifices in them.  Make sure they are open

When you reassemble, given it is the stock carb for the engine (I assume), take the two needles and gently take them in until they bottom out. Don't want to crank them down tight, just touch, then for starters, turn each of them out two full turns. This will be a little bit rich, but get her running and purring before adjusting the needles, which usually stay right around 1.5 to 1.75 turns out. I really don't consider that much of a problem, and since the two metering rods can be identified as being in the carb instead of in the carb top, that is a difficult one when you only have quarter inch to look at some of them.

Yup, it's the stock carb.  One thing I did notice I don't like is a bit of play in the throttle shaft,  I know that will make a vacuum leak.  I'd probably be better off buying a new Eddy than having somoene try and rebush that shaft I reckon.  The BBD will have to do for now.

They all had some slop.  They don't leak enough to matter that much

It's maybe a 32nd of an inch, but I can see light through it when it's to one side.  I'll talk to the shop tomorrow about it.   Trying to convince myself I want a 4 barrel, but can't let go of the BBD if it's a viable item!  I'm too damn cheap to give up on a usuable part!carrman2012-01-15 23:20:06

By the way Ed and Steve, you guys have been invaluable with this, thanks.  I know I'm asking basic, stupid questions, but you both have been real troopers about it.  Thank you.
